American Muslims are mourning Dr. Ahmed El-Kadi, a prominent leader who died this weekend after a full spirited life he spent sincerely serving and leading Muslims through his and pioneering achievements. The veteran Muslim leader and famed retired heart surgeon died Saturday in Panama City, Florida, at the age of 69. Kadi, an Egyptian-origin, has been leading community work and spent much of his time in Islamic work in the US, where he lived for the past 44 years. He has played a vital role in establishing numerous Muslim organizations, in the US and the entire North America. Kadi has also been a veteran leader in many of these organizations, including the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the Muslim Youth of North America (MYNA) and the Islamic Medical Association (IMA). Dr. El-Kadi will be greatly remembered for his loving personality, soft heart, soft language and contributions to Islamic medicine research and education. Imam Muhammad Abdul Jabbar said about his teacher as following: Today when I recall late Dr. Ahmed el Kadi my eyes are flooded with tears because I think the vacuum created by his death will take a longer time to fill in. Allah SWT had adorned him with pleasant and friendly personality. During a Youth Camp of ISNA Canada held at Winnipeg in 1994, I saw him walking in lobbies with his students and standing outside the seminar rooms responding to questions of participants in his light mood and smiling face. When he concluded his series of lectures and gave his farewell remarks, everyone there was sad. Dr. Kadi was soft spoken and endowed with influential personality. He carried his audience with him through out his speech. May Allah SWT bless him with light in his grave and shower His blessings on him and reward him for serving His deen. Amen!
